Pine Valley Outdoor Centre is about to see some new development as our long term neighbours, administrators and founding members Lloyd and Val Mapp step away from their role. We have also recently lost our long term caretaker, and these vacancies have inspired the committee to look at alternative options to maintain this precious resource for the people of Marlborough.

Our next steps require some additional onsite buildings for administration and storage and we need to raise funds to build these. We are also planning to update our services, by providing some equipment, connections to local conservation groups, sport and recreation groups, and educational packages.

We are applying to multiple grants for funding assistance, as well as local council, and our own fundraising schemes.

We are running a fundraising auction on Friday February 22 2019 at the Clubs of Marlborough as one step in our fundraising plan. This auction will be hosted by local Michael Rea, who has run successful auctions for other Marlborough causes.

We are currently looking for donations that we can auction and would be grateful to any Marlborough business that could support us in this way. We will also run a raffle, so any raffle items that can be donated, or schools/groups that could sell raffle tickets is much appreciated.

Tickets for the auction will include a buffet meal. They are $45 each, or $400 for a table of ten, and are available to purchase by emailing

We look forward to continuing to run PVOC as a charitable trust and provide an authentic Marlborough experience to children and adults from all over Marlborough.

You can email Jess on to make a donation, pre-book a ticket or table, or with any further questions.
